The week of July 4th is usually pretty slow, but there were plenty of fireworks this year. Aside from a big acquisition, Facebook, Walmart and Hallmark are in the news, as well as a segment on rainbow-colored flags and the companies that say they support them, but in reality, not-so-much. Try not to choke on all the hot dogs, PBR and freedom. And show our sponsors some Yankee Doodle appreciation. Sovren, Canvas and JobAdx are our Red, White and Blue.
